    What to Expect
    Start with a pickup from your Kos hotel and travel to the island’s number one archeological site, Asklepieion. Believed to have been built around the 4th century BC, the site served two purposes: a health and healing resort, and a temple to Asclepius – the Greek god of health. As you explore, listen to your guide explain the attraction’s history. You’ll learn more about Hippocrates, the ancient doctor from Kos, who developed healing methods that are still used today.

    Hop back aboard your minivan and travel further inland to the village of Zia on Dikaion Mountain. Enjoy some time at leisure to soak up panoramic views of Kos Island, and explore the shops. The village is popular with local artists and craftspeople so browse their boutiques for pretty keepsakes of Kos to take home.

    Meet your guide and travel onward to a local vineyard, nestled in the heart of Kos’ most fertile land. The family-run winery boasts some of the finest local varieties of red and green grapes, such as malagousia and assyrtiko. Sample a few glasses of the estate’s red and white wine while learning about the region’s winemaking history.

    After relaxing in the sun, sipping on fine wine and chatting with your guide, return to your minivan and travel to the Tree of Hippocrates near Kos’ ancient fortress – Castle Neratzia. Some 2,500 years ago, Hippocrates was said to have taught medicine to his students under the famous plane tree. Pose for photos, and then finish your tour with a drop-off at your hotel.

    We took our 10 year old grand daughter and were very pleased with the trip which was a good chance for adults to get a little history/culture/local colour without grand daughter going on strike!!
